Hi, I’m Janine. I’m a mother of two, and the creator of Studio Coop.
Studio Coop came to be when I had my first child, Cooper. I wanted nothing more than to be able to spend every day with him. I tried to think of every way possible to be able to work from home, and after having spent twelve years in retail, I knew wanted something different. That's when I found clay, and I discovered a whole other creative part of myself I'd never known before.
Everyday I look forward to making new things (especially when my children are napping). Drafting, designing, struggling and creating are all part of the process I have come to love. I have also expanded my artistic endeavors beyond clay earrings to explore resin, acrylic, and other types of materials. When I’m not in my workshop, I enjoy being outdoors in nature with my family taking trips to the beach, camping, and hiking.
I am so grateful for every single person who supports my small business. In doing so, you not only support me, but my family as well. Never in a million years did I think that I would be able to call myself an artist and a small business owner, but here I am, thanks to all of my lovely and amazing supporters.
